Bank in the Form of a Pig, Matte Pink

  • Sale
  • Regular price $150.00


Bank in the Form of a Pig is part of the “Reality Series” that Harry Allen designed for Areaware, inspired by the beauty of everyday objects. Adapting an idea of casting them in a new material from the art world, it forces people to re-consider that which has been cast. Using a technique that involves casting polyester resin in highly detailed silicone molds, designer Harry Allen borrows from the world around him with precision. Each object is chosen with care and often a comic sensibility. Here, a pig that died of natural causes becomes a bank. The bank holds up to $10,000 in dollar bills.

Born in New Jersey in 1964, Harry Allen received a Master’s Degree in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute. In 1993, he established Harry Allen Design, and since then, he has designed furniture, lighting, products, and interiors for a wide variety of international clients.
